Twenty hours ago we announced that the Creature Creator for Spore was released worldwide. Since then, there's been more than 250,000 creatures created with the Creatures Creator. Wow, that's quite the number in such a short amount of time.
The stats tell us that there's been more than two creatures created every second since the launch, it will be interesting to see how long that will last. I'm very happy that Spore is getting such a reception over their Creature Creator, makes you wonder how many will buy the actual game, what do you think?
“The response to the Spore Creature Creator has been overwhelming,” said Lucy Bradshaw, executive producer of Spore at Maxis. “The creativity and passion that the community is putting into their creatures is spectacular. The development team has spent the last 24 hours checking out the amazing creations racing in from all corners of the globe – with peak volume hitting more than 1,000 creatures being shared a minute.”
Crazy, over 1,000 creatures shared per minute at it's peak! I'm definitely getting Spore when it's out, anyone who's even remotely curious about it and/or who enjoyed the Sim City games should consider it as well. I'll go as far as saying, everyone should, but then again I'd like to see what the final product will bring first...
